My 9 month old cat went to be spayed on Friday - I was told the operation went fine and she was sent home with me later that day. I paid for a medical vest because I couldn’t bear thought of her in a cone but she was really restricted in it and miserable so today (Monday) we’ve taken it off her and replaced it with a soft collar. She seems a bit less miserable with this new collar but she’s just not been herself. She’s been sleeping a lot (which I did expect) but she’s extremely lethargic - she normally wakes up around 6am and she’s been sleeping or not moving until about 10am. Her body has also been twitching a lot and she has been shaking her head and legs in the way that a dog would if it had wet fur. She’s on medication once a day which I did think the medication was giving her these side effects but I took her into the vets today for her post op check up and it wasn’t the best news. The vet said her temperature is on the high side of “normal” and that the incision is a bit red and swollen so we need to monitor it everyday. She said that if we are worried we should ring the vets and bring her in. The vet said she is very quiet and would like her to be more active than she is acting - prior to this she was always so energetic and following me everywhere. I’ve had a look at the incision and it doesn’t look right at all. It looks like it’s slightly open and it doesn’t look straight. I couldn’t really look at it properly as I could only look whilst her body was stretched to the side so perhaps that’s why it doesn’t look straight. Is there anything I can do for her in terms of making it less red or swollen? Has this happened to anyone else’s cats?
